NetFusion in Verizon's Network

Recently Sedona’s CTO Ori Gerstel sat down with Glenn Wellbrock, Verizon's director of optical transport planning, to discuss the practical challenges of introducing accurate discovery and automation into a Tier-1 service provider network, and the significant value in delivering services and saving network costs that can be achieved through such automation. As a backdrop to the discussion, Verizon deployed Sedona’s NetFusion network Intelligence and Automation solution earlier in 2017, specifically to address some of these challenges.
